Global warming is real

Either we must adapt to the changing climate around us or pay the price for aimlessly exploiting and harming our natural resources with our lives. Or paying with our lives would be an overstatement. President Trump has opted out of the Paris climate deal, which could ease restrictions on carbon emissions. Yet, some industries are still cutting back on the emissions, which pleases me for the sake of our already fragile planet. If I were an industrialist, I'd respect the environment as much as possible  without ample dependence on wood, oil and more critically, in my view is fading into obsolescence, coal.

I have deep concerns for honeybees, polar bears and other fauna and flora on the edge of extinction, which is why I hope God has a rule for such a crisis. Evolve or die. Unless animals evolve by having the ability to fire ice beams to repair the North Pole and The South Pole, it's not gonna be a pretty life for those affected by climate change. But the ice beam front is but a sci-fi fantasy.

I find climate change to be insuperable, even though the downpours we had in California this winter washed away our horrible drought and with it, my worries. But if the drought comes back within 3 years tops, it'll be way too soon. The Republican Party wants us to care too little about global warming. But the Democratic Party wants us to worry too much about it. From this, I've learned that we don't need government control over industrial interests. If industries are capable of respecting our environment no matter the cost or difficulty, that makes me prouder to be a centrist than before!

******* social media

Today, there was an unprecedented explosion at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England. This is an act of terror that isn't normal nor should it ever be. But some people on social media either write sarcastic comments or don't give a crap about the victims of any arbitrary act of malice, such as what we've seen today. Normally, I pray for the victims of the explosion. Could it be from ISIS or from someone holding a grudge against the government. Any government at all.

I've even seen social media talk **** about Hillary Clinton and her family. All I want is for Hillary herself to retire from politics permanently. She is clearly an innocent human being and it doesn't matter if you're a fan of her or not. Not to mention, I've seen conspiracy theories that claim associates or adversaries of the Clintons have been murdered mysteriously, or as they call it, the Clinton Body Count! If you're an informed American, you won't believe such things have really happened.

Also, I am starting to believe President Trump's collusion with Russia to rig the election is but a conspiracy theory. 

Either way, I wanna see answers to this mumbo-jumbo.

Zip Zap Zop

Today, I went to this fundraiser from Zip Zap Zop, hosted by my sister, Maja Miletich!

Today, I learned I'm not good with interviews because some questions can be a problem to process. Also in interviews, you can be asked questions you don't know the answer to when it's not within a core memory, those that you remember as long as you live. For example, I remember going to school at STARS, who I remember Jim Partington from. Plus, Ms. Ann Lyke whom I also remember from STARS. Those are among my core memories. Another core memory is moving to our two story house in 1997 and I've been having nightmares of moving back to the one story house we used to live in before and that happens to be a dark side of this particular core memory. I hear mom and dad talking about selling our house and I don't wanna see that come to pass until 2022. This has pushed me to do the impossible because of the high demand: renting my own apartment.

Internet... UGH!

Usually I spend my days on the internet because I look up to it as an all-powerful encyclopedia. But right now, I'm paying the price for my own addiction to it. What I loathe about the Internet is not gaming, private stuff or even Facebook. There are news articles that seem to distort reality with over statements and sometimes under statements. Mainly in politics and climate change. I'm working to supress this habit to see what's going on in the world because the more I worry about something, the more it worries me. I feel like I'm having a heart attack after doing this compulsive research on the things mankind has no power to change or stop. I take deep breaths to ease the anxiety and then I'm forced to take steps to keep all these unwanted thoughts out of my head.

On the Internet, I come across what some people claim to be facts. The worst type of facts, you ask? There are facts which I wish weren't! For example, politicians, whether Republican or Democratic, sometimes have to make up stuff to ensure the success of their political agendas. It's a fact I wish wasn't. Scientists seemingly overestimate the impact of global warming. I could be mistaken, but that too is a fact I wish wasn't. And finally, some people tend to be sarcastic on things they don't know completely about. Like politics. Or maybe, as my uncle told me "people can consider some statements 'facts' even though they're not entirely true". That's considered a fact I wish wasn't.

Sarcasm is what I'd consider the worst kind of stupidity that's been mucking up the Internet all over! Sure, it could be used when dealing with stress or any bad situation. But use it wisely and see to it you're not a smartass. That just makes you less popular. Some people can call you stupid for having views that don't reflect on that person's views. Though I can't quite change that, whatever their problem is with divisive beliefs, it's their problem and theirs alone. Not mine. Come to think of it, some people get the urge to make sarcastic statements out of jealousy, frustration or worry. But I can't change that, either, no matter how hard I try doing so.

Perfect independence

Normally, a lot of people achieve perfect independence, meaning you can drive a car, pay your bills and work hard for your money. Don't work too hard, though. When I first entered Futures Explored, I came across a few people with autism that seemingly achieved perfect independence. One in particular is Deborah Louise, a single mom to a pair of kids. Was I amazed to have met someone like her!

Worry is a poison

The more you worry about something, the more it ultimately worries you. But it's to be expected among moms, dads, spouses and grandparents. I've been worrying about things I don't have the power to fix, such as the California drought, which I won't accept as a new normal! However, I started working on resisting my worries. I've been obsessed with the one thing that sometimes causes intrigue, but sometimes worry on top of it: the news. Are they facts? Probably not, but seems likely. Political conservatives worry about this nation being marred by liberals because the latter doesn't follow rules based on truth and facts.

I think the news is promoting more worry about many things than before thanks to a different type of poison: bias. When it comes to climate change, some articles say droughts will persist for another 5 years. That's bias! Some articles claim carbon capture in vehicles won't work. Although it does work, it's not quite as affordable as we thought. That's partially bias. But even without bias, there comes an old saying that goes a little something like this: You can't handle the truth.That means you would end up hearing statements you'll eventually wish wasn't the truth. Like in politics, conservatives say liberalism is a mental disorder. Now I'm barely beginning to see how it makes sense. Liberals seem to write articles that support negative outcomes (like "this will only get worse, scientists say" or "situation rapidly getting worse") in an effort to make their political enemies listen on certain issues, like climate change. I hope liberalism is a mental disorder in terms of politics. Otherwise, I wish someone would state that conservatism is a mental disorder in politics.

If all you wanna see is good news, then I'd recommend checking out the GNN or goodnewsnetwork.org! It seems to be the only worthwhile news source I can rely on. Whenever I feel the urge to check on something that will worry me, I'll just shake it off.

Be careful what you wish for

All wishes that are granted can produce undesired properties. For example, such as wishing for less rain to bother you. Either someone wished for just that or we are indeed approaching the age of one of the most brutal natural disasters yet: over 20 years or centuries of little to no rainfall, aka megadroughts. They say some things are too good to be true, but in the case of megadroughts, more like too calamitous to be true! But enough of that.

If you want a wish to be granted, you should either wait for that wish to be granted or you could be lucky enough to find something that makes your wish come true immediately. But could there be such a thing as the latter? Probably not. I don't recommend giving details about your wish, whether before or after it comes true. Another thing, don't confuse the Make-a-wish foundation with a miracle organization, for it mainly arranges unique experiences for children with life-threatening conditions.

In my theory, wishes can be a double-edged sword, meaning to make one to suit your own benefits, you could hurt some one else's. As one of several Californians to wish for lots of rain, some in the spring, but not in the summer, you would need to prepare for the unwanted effects that come your way. I'd be ready to face hardships for the benefit of whoever is suffering in the most ways possible, if there were no goals I have for myself. Ha! Heck, there will be countless goals I may have for myself, but any challenge that entangles you is unavoidable.

As for whatever has the power to make your wishes come true instantly, you're normally limited to 3 wishes. If I had three wishes, my first would be to have $1,000,000 to give away to charity and help those stuck in poverty. My second wish is if we had a hyper transportation system that uses portals, making it superior to air travel. I could be seeing this wish already coming true in 2030! Just a prediction. My third wish is for the ability to see into the future, through dreams or metaphorically a crystal ball. But sometimes it may be best to leave the future as it will come because it would be ruinous to the natural time flow to tamper with it. Instead of trying to change the future, I'd prefer to ensure it's for the best of mankind and never to imperil it. Or is it best kept a secret?
